The Ng's. Okay, mostly just Akia.

When I started this blog, many many moons ago, I was a Southern Girl in Atlanta, counting down the days till I got to spend more time with my Californian boyfriend living in Texas. Since then, we've gotten married, bought a house, had two little boys (15 months apart), and we're doing our best to navigate life with smiles, faith, and lots of butt grabs.

If you have happened here by chance, I'm Akia. In the last ten years I've blogged for sooooo many reasons and this time, I'm just going to do it with the hope that my words can help someone feel a little less alone in this marriage and motherhood journey. So if you can relate to that, lift your glass (mine is currently filled with red wine), and let's get to know each other*.

*First fun fact: I met one of my bridesmaids because she commented on a post that I wrote on one of my older blogs. My friends still laugh at us because outside of talking online she was a COMPLETE stranger so naturally, I invited her to Charlotte (where I was living at the time) to spend the weekend with me, haha! What I'm saying is I'm way too friendly so if you're here, let's chat!
